Floods in Liguria

Vernazza flooding (Photo credit Laspezia.menticale.it)
The floods in Liguria, and more specifically, the Cinque Terre, are not getting the press that Turkey's earthquake or Bangkok's floods are receiving, but they have devastated the region.  The towns worst hit are the lovely Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.  To help the people rebuild in Vernazza and Monterosso, here is a bank account set up for relief donations. 

And, here is a link to give via credit card through the Italian Red Cross.  You can choose "Tuscany and Liguria Emergency."

  1. Thank you Ktp for your comment on ST re: the CT & Rick Steves. I was feeling cruddy about my statement even if I do feel strongly about it, so it's nice to know I am not the only one who perceived his letter strangely. M:)

  2. Hi Megan,
    Indeed a total and complete disconnect from Rick. Really weird. Hang in there. There is so much love for your area, I just know it will rebound back to its original splendor or maybe even better!
